LONGMONT, COLO. (March 10, 2020) – Ziggi’s Coffee (www.ZiggisCoffee.com) has signed a deal to open up shop in the town of Wellington, Colorado, a community that was named the fourth fastest growing town in the state of Colorado according to its website. A real estate development group has chosen the popular drive-thru coffee concept as the first retail outlet to be built upon a six-acre parcel, soon to be bustling with activity.
Known as the Boxelder Commons, the site is located off Interstate 25 at the Wellington exit, an area that sees approximately 25,000 vehicles per day. This will be the first drive-thru coffee shop for the town of nearly 10,000 people, which has recently seen a rise in residential growth and is actively seeking greater retail options for its residents.
“Ziggi’s Coffee was the obvious choice when looking for a drive-thru coffee concept to place on our new development site,” said Andrew Rauch, Vice President of FRZ LLC., the ownership group behind the franchise deal. “The further we looked into it, the more we realized what a great opportunity it was for us to not just open a Ziggi’s Coffee, but to own the business ourselves.”
With 10 years of residential real estate development experience, Rauch and his team are diversifying their portfolio. He says they were quickly drawn to Ziggi’s Coffee because of the efficiency of the business, the low initial investment, and its scalability.
“This was first and foremost a real estate opportunity,” he says. “But as we got further into it, we became more and more excited about the Ziggi’s business itself. I think there’s a lot of value for what you get with the Ziggi’s franchise.”
The company, which got its start as a small coffee shop on Main Street in downtown Longmont, Colorado, has steadily expanded across the northern front range since it began franchising in 2016. It now has locations that span up the I-25 corridor from Westminster to Fort Collins, as well as locations in Estes Park, and most recently in Arizona and Oklahoma.
